Cow-Calf and Pasture Management Meeting to be held in Oshkosh on October 22


This fall, many ranchers have a herd of questions:

What are the options are dealing with weeds in range and pasture?  How are current low grain prices and higher hay prices impacting feeding options for this fall and winter?  Are you considering backgrounding calves this winter and wondering how to manage price risk?

A Cow-Calf and Pasture Management workshop will be held, Monday, Oct. 22, from 6:30 - 9 p.m. at the Wesleyan Church near Oshkosh that will address these questions.

Dr. Karla Jenkins, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cow-Calf Specialist, will discuss “Fall and Winter Supplementation and Feeding with Current Commodity Prices.”
